Lennon: to help me stop reading at bedtime and go to sleep Me (trying to keep a straight face): oh so you were reading when you were supposed to sleep? Lennon: Yes. Me: I love that you want to read, but what is bedtime for? Lennon is mimicking a reading motion Me: Umm no bedtime is for what, Lennon? Lennon mimics the sleeping motionMe: so now go back to bed and try sleeping instead of reading. Lennon returns to his bedroom Have you ever heard of a child telling on himself? Oh, he makes me smile!
